How To Store Handbags in a Closet – 4 Tips

9th April 2024

Handbags are prized possessions for many people. Whether they are extremely expensive or hold sentimental value, they are the crown jewel in many people’s wardrobes and closets.

However, they can tend to take up a disproportionate amount of space.

Below are some tips on how to store your handbag properly – which not only keeps them organised, but also preserves their shape and material.

1. Hang vertically and stuff

Use shelf dividers or cubbies to stack handbags vertically. This prevents them from being squished and makes them easily accessible. Also, stuff handbags with scarves or bubble wrap to help maintain their shape. Avoid using newspaper as the ink can transfer.

2. Hang with care

This seems an obvious one, but for bags with straps, consider hanging them on sturdy hooks. Ensure the hook supports the bag’s weight without distorting the strap, and rotate your handbags to evenly distribute wear and tear, keeping all your bags looking fresh.

3. Dust bags are a must

Store luxury handbags in their original dust bags – or use soft, breathable fabric bags – to protect against dust and scratches. Also, if you’re able to, avoid sunlight and moisture by positioning your closet away from direct sunlight and damp areas, to prevent fading and mold growth.

4. Rotate regularly

Apart from those handbags for special occasions, make sure you rotate the order of your handbags so your more everyday options are getting used evenly throughout the year. This will stop you using the same handbags over and over whilst others get unused. If you still find you aren’t using some of them and you’re happy to let them go, consider gifting them away to friends and family or charity shops. Of course, you can even sell them online and make some cash.

Too many handbags and gladrags? If you’re running out of space at home but just can’t part with some of your possessions, then there’s always self storage. And if you’re based in or near Cardiff, South Wales, then there’s Easystore Self Storage.
